The Brunch Series : Chapter Two

We were so excited to come back for The Brunch Series: Chapter Two - this time at the Marriott Pinnacle Hotel in Downtown Vancouver. We had eight amazing participants and guests and enjoyed a delicious meal in the sunshine on their Third Floor Patio. This patio is the perfect space for a ceremony (110 seated) or cocktail hour as it has an adjoining room for reception.

Jessica, at Quince Fine Florals, captured the vibe I was going for perfectly by creating some beautiful summery garden florals for the table. My work-path hasn’t crossed with Jessica’s in too long and I was so happy for the opportunity to reconnect with her!

I invited Denise Lin Photography to join us for the event for two reasons! One, because I knew she would capture the event perfectly with her signature natural light, bright and airy photography. And two, because it’s been so long since we’ve been able to catch up and I miss her! The whole point of this Brunch Series is to connect with other vendors and it was my sneaky way to steal some time with her! She’s just the sweetest!

The team at A&B Party Time supplied the wooden harvest table and modern white chairs to perfectly mix the looks I had in my mind! We switched in the white Belini Chair last minute for a bolder look and a more modern table. So happy with how it came out!

The Brunch Series : Chapter One

We are so excited to introduce the launch of a new project we have been working on!

The Brunch Series!

We have always worked so hard and producing amazing content for our blog and instagram in the form of Styled Shoots. These are done often in our industry as a was for vendors and suppliers to flex their creative muscles and work together to make magic happen! The problem though, is that we take the photos and everyone leaves. So we decided to change things up and start doing what we are good at - celebrating! We have started coordinating catering as a way to make sure that our industry gets that chance to have a great meal and authentic small group conversation.

This is something we hope to continue on a regular basis! Stay tuned for more amazing images and industry contributions!

We were so lucky to have a phenomenal first event. We partnered with the ShangriLa Vancouver and dine in their Alberni Room. The room is flooded with natural light, beautiful wood tables and neutral, modern chairs. The perfect backdrop! Celsia Floral captured the inspiration board perfectly and brought spring inside with bold and beautiful florals! Pedersens Rentals supplied the amazing gold accented cutlery, plates and my favourite glassware in the city! I seriously need these! Christine Pienaar captured the day beautifully and shared all fo these amazing images with us.

If you are a Vancouver vendor who would like to participate, either as a vendor or a guest, please send me note and I will get you our sign up list!

Check out the images below to see our delightful afternoon!

K&T's UBC Boathouse Wedding

All photos by Christine Pienaar Photography

We loved being a part of Tyler and Kelsies beautiful wedding at UBC Boathouse. Kelsie is an artist and her taste was impeccable. She incorporated some of her own art into the day with a number of elements - but my favourite was the custom table runner that she used on the long dining tables. It added the more personal and authentic touch to an already beautiful space.

Our girl Christine Pienaar was on hand to capture this beautiful day! She even went so far to put together an adorable, moving video of their day.

Thanks Kelsie and Tyler for having us on board for your wedding! It was so fun to be a part of your creative process!

Kaitlyn and Tom - Union Wood Co. Wedding

This wedding was adorable. All the little details. The meaningful touches. The intimate size. All of it.

Laura was the lead planner on this wedding at Union Wood Co. She worked with Kaitlyn and Tom to bring this beautiful day to life. Even through the rain, Kaitlyn and Tom could not. stop. smiling. Their joy and love is evident!

These images were perfectly captured by The Godards (formerly Danaea Li Photography)! They have just launched their new company and it is worth a visit to their new website! It’s gorgeous!

International Womens Day : Reading List

I get so inspired reading about the challenges, obstacles, and wise words of those women in business and life who are KILLING it. I mean women who have jumped into the deep-end of life with both feet, don’t take no for an answer and who are reaping the rewards. Sometimes all I have time for is an audiobook in-between meetings or while I’m driving but I soak up every word.

These are books about business, personal growth, self reflection and challenging yourself. And they are all amazing! The Year of Yes honestly changed my life.

In honour of International Womens Day I wanted to share with you some of my favourites with you! Click the images below for the summaries of each book!

Let me know if you have read any of them or if you have any others I should add to my list!

S&Y Beautiful Blush Wedding at the Fairmont Pacific Rim

A bit of blush today to celebrate Valentines this week! Samantha and Yindar were married at the beautiful Fairmont Pacific Rim in Vancouver. They had the most amazing team on hand to make sure that no detail was overlooked. Koncept Events did an incredible job with the decor and florals. And the service at the Pacific Rim was second to none (as always!!).

To top it off, the day was perfectly captured by Life Studios Inc.

We were so happy to be brought on board to help these two tie the knot! xoxo

All in the Family - Classic Farm Wedding

We were so honoured to be back on this family farm to celebrate T&J’s wedding! Two years ago we helped T’s sister tie the knot on the family farm and it was a perfect day to be back celebrating an amazing couple! The amount of love and support by the couples family and friends was truly amazing, they helped transform a potato barn into the perfect reception site. This group was certainly one you want to dance the night away with!
